Billing and OSS World 2009, LAS VEGAS, Nevada, April 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT), a leader in IP service optimization and revenue generation solutions based on deep packet inspection (DPI), announced today that it has cooperated with HP to deliver an integrated solution for mobile operators to deploy intelligent Policy Control and Charging (PCC).
The solution is expected to enable mobile and converged broadband operators to generate and optimize new revenue streams for IP mobile data services supported by application-awareness. Application-awareness is used to identify over-the-top video streaming, VoIP, file sharing, P2P, and other services so that subscribers may realize optimum quality of experience.
This innovative joint offering integrates Allot's Service Gateway (SG) for policy enforcement and the HP Internet Usage Manager (IUM) for real time charging and policy decision functionality, bringing together best-in-breed components for mobile network operators. The HP IUM product serves as an On-Line Charging System (OCS) and as a base platform for Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF). The Allot SG serves as the Policy Control Enforcement Function (PCEF).
The policy control and enforcement is dynamic, subscriber- and application-aware, enabling mobile operators to deliver advanced IP services with different charging rates. This makes the solution a fundamental building block for an intelligent IP network that enforces policy with consideration of subscribers' service plans.
Mobile network operators can use the solution from Allot and HP to build a complete PCC infrastructure that enables rapid introduction of innovative mobile services with increased revenues. The solution uses 3GPP standards-based interfaces and can be applied to 3G and 4G mobile networks based upon IMS and LTE.
"The introduction of mobile broadband services has led to a flood of mobile IP data that must be properly managed. As mobile broadband becomes more mainstream, the need for dynamic, application-aware policy management and real time charging becomes increasingly critical. The solution from Allot and HP is providing real business benefit" stated Azi Ronen, Allot's Executive Vice President of Corporate Development.
"Mobile network operators will be able to monetize new services and generate increased revenue with this joint offering," said Tomas Kovar, IUM Product Manager, Communications and Media Solutions, HP. "This complete solution for policy and charging control is designed to support the delivery of those high-revenue IP services that are most desired by mobile subscribers."
